On the 7th of November, join Jan Knikker as he explores MVRDV’s practice of parametric design and innovative software that pushes the boundaries of what is possible. The 2022-2023 Hyde Lecture Series at the University of Nebraska explores the theme of Information Stimulus as the evolution in information technology is being driven by novel means of uncovering, transferring, and disseminating information.
This Hyde Lecture series is a long-standing, endowed public program that provides inspiring speakers to address graduate students of University of Nebraska Lincoln architecture graduates. The series is intended to enrich the ongoing dialogue around agendas which are paramount to the design disciplines and our graduates. This year’s Hyde Lectures are operating under the thesis of Information Stimulus: New Paradigms in planning and design.
